DSCF0963As the summer creeps closer and closer to us, I like to get my hair in good condition as I find once im away on holiday my hair can get a bit dry due to the hot weather.

DSCF0964To start I like to jump in the bath and get my hair all nicely washed. At the minute I have been loving the Garnier Ultimate Blends The Silky Smoother Shampoo and Conditioner in the scent Vanilla milk and Papaya. Don’t worry I don’t only wash my hair in the summer but it thought id give you a quick look at what ive been loving using at the moment. When im paying my hair special attention I like to add a thick amount of this on my hair and leave it for five minutes before rinsing it off and depending on how much time I have, sometimes I like to do two coats of the shampoo.

I then go onto using a hair mask and the one that I have been loving lately is the Macadamia Oil Extract Hair Treatment, which I get from the £1 shop for guess how much a £1! I add this hair treatment once a week to keep my hair in a gorgeous condition. Again I leave this on for around 5-10 minutes and make sure it is all rubbed into my roots. I also like to put my hair up in a towel whilst this is on just to make sure it stays put on my hair.

DSCF0966When styling my hair in the Summer I don’t like to use too much heat due to the fact it is already facing heat from the sun. So if i’m not popping out anywhere once i’ve washed my hair I tend to leave it to dry on its own. If I’m going to straighten it I will then do so once it has dried but if I am wanting to go for a more beach styled/wavy look I like to add the Loreal Studio Matt & Messy Sea Salt Spray which gives my hair a lovely texture and also creates gorgeous waves. If I am just wanting more of a volumed look with straightened sections of my hair I like to add some of the Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray to the roots and then rub it in.

I hope you liked todays post on Getting Ready For The Summer, a bit of a shorter one this week but next week it will be back with a longer style post with lots more photos! Who knows maybe ill be letting you see into my beach bag! (hinthint)
